As we continue to exist in a “socially distanced” world, we are eager to provide your child with an opportunity for safe socialization and support around navigating friendships and emotions. This year we are planning to offer groups for children over telehealth (video). Our plan this year is for our groups to start in late October and run through the 2020-2021 school year with breaks over holidays.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a third-wave behavioral psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, psychosis, and chronic pain.  ACT integrates mindfulness skills with values-guided living. It helps clients develop a compassionate relationship to painful thoughts and feelings versus attempting to avoid or control them.  This shift allows clients to focus instead on clarifying personal values and using that knowledge to take action that promotes a rich, meaningful life.
